With two home-court wins and a runner-up finish in a tournament last week, the Lady Blackhawks have a lot to be happy about. Their first win of the week came on Tuesday night, when they beat the Corsica-Stickney Jaguars in a hard-fought battle that went to five sets. Set scores were 25-23, 15-25, 25-14, 17-25 and 15-6.

On Thursday, the SCW ladies hosted Mitchell Christian in Forestburg. They added another win to their record with set scores of 25-5, 25-7 and 25-9.

On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Lady Blackhawks traveled to Wolsey for the Wolsey Tournament. In tournaments, the games are won with the best of two out of three sets. The Lady Blackhawks’ first match was against the Sunshine Bible Academy Crusaders. SCW beat them in two with scores of 25-9 and 25-11.

Their second match of the tournament was against a very strong team from Langford Area. The Lady Blackhawks pulled off the win with set scores of 25-23 in both winning sets.

SCW’s third match of pool play was against the Leola/Frederick Area Titans. The Lady Blackhawks won in two sets with scores of 25-14 and 25-9.

The tournament championship game matched the SCW Lady Blackhawks against the host team of the Wolsey-Wessington Warbirds, who are currently rated first in the State B polls. The Lady Blackhawks proved to be a tough opponent for the strong Warbirds, but the SCW ladies couldn’t get in a groove, and they ended the tournament with a loss in set scores of 16-25 and 18-25 and brought home the second-place title. Stats for the final game of the day were pretty even across the team.

With a record of 9-2 so far this season, the Lady Blackhawks started this week of play in Wessington Springs on Tuesday, Sept. 14. Their next game will be in Rutland on Saturday, Sept. 18. They will host Wolsey-Wessington for a rematch on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at Sanborn Central.

Her memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Kuhler Funeral Home. Burial will be in the Restlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery. Her family requests that all attendees wear a mask.

Marilyn was born March 18, 1935, to Walter and Reeka (Kroupenske) Mier at Centerville. Her family later moved to the Huron area. Marilyn graduated from Woonsocket High School.

On Dec. 6, 1953, Marilyn married Lloyd Bonebrake, and they made their home in Huron.

After high school, Marilyn started work at Randall’s Foods, where she worked for over 40 years. At the age of 65, she retired as an assistant manager of Coborn’s. After retirement, Marilyn enjoyed traveling with her husband and living in Arizona for a few years. After her husband passed away, Marilyn moved back to South Dakota in 2018. Marilyn enjoyed beading and loved shopping.

Marilyn is survived by her children, Deborah Spencer of Council Bluffs, Iowa, Diane (David) Fuhrman of Huron and Lyle (Angie) Bonebrake of Mesa, Ariz.; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and one sister-in-law, Kay Lidgett of Hill City.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Lloyd; her siblings, Merlyn Mier and Patricia Johnson; and one brother-in-law, Eugene Lidgett.

The Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central Blackhawks competed against the new SESD conference opponent, Jim River Trappers (Scotland/Menno), on Friday in Forestburg. The Blackhawks used a suffocating defense and a solid run game to get a 45-6 win.

The game started with Jim River receiving and moving the ball to midfield. On a fourth and inches, the Blackhawks were able to hold strong and give the offense possession. The Blackhawks ran the ball effectively ending with a Carter Grohs jet sweep to the right for a 37-yard touchdown. WWSSC failed to make the two-point conversion for a 6-0 lead with 7:30 left in the first. The lead would hold for the first quarter.
